New Years Eve Beer Blogging

Most people go out on New Years Eve, but I never do. I just like to stay in and watch football all day. Plus, in the last 5 years we've always had a big bowl game to attend in the morning so I like to get to sleep early. Today I sat down for lunch with the early bowl games. A Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere Farmhouse Ale sounded like the perfect thing, at only 4.5% ABV. This beer has a couple really nice characteristics to it. It starts with a huge lemon tang, but finishes with a nice yeasty earthiness as in a standard saison that hasn't been put into barrel with funky microbes (like Jolly Pumpkin does).

Taking a beer break for now, looking forward to something nice and dark tonight.
